Izzy & Moe / Family Plan [Double Feature]
IZZY & MOE (1985)
Izzy and Moe re-united two of the most beloved television performers, Jackie Gleason and Art Carney (The Honeymooners) in this made for television movie. Jackie and Art play the parts of Izzy Einstein and Moe Smith, two vaudeville performers-turned-prohibition agents in the 1920s. Mixing comedy with drama, they become two of the most effective agents in the battle against the bottle and when their success attracts the attention of the mob, the two vaudevillians must use all their wits to stay alive.
In their last performance together on the small screen, Gleason and Carney are at the top of their form. Director Jackie Cooper (Perry White in Superman II, Our Gang) plays it straight, letting the boys get the laughs.
FAMILY PLAN (2005)
A fresh romantic comedy with a delicious screwball twist, Family Plan is delightful family fun that proves there's nothing make-believe about love...
When Charlie McKenzie's new boss extols the virtue of family, the single-and-loving-it woman secures her job by borrowing her best friend's daughter and hiring an out-of-work actor to play her devoted husband. But a one-night marriage turns into a full-time improv when her boss becomes her new neighbor.
